So I guess it's been a while. Because the reasons are neither dramatic nor interesting, let's put that aside for a bit and focus instead on my new gadget.
It's not a typewriter. It's not even cutting edge, since I'm certainly the last reader on the planet to finally get a Kindle. The fascination is simply this:
My daughter understands her mama's odd techno-dichotomy enough to gift me with a Kindle wrapped elegantly in a Verso embossed typewriter cover. How delightful is that?
It may take me a while to learn to read without a pen in my hand to scribble margin notes, but I'm thoroughly enjoying the clickety-click of zooming between books. No more going room to room to find one of the three I'm reading at the same time. Ah, progress.
